Here I am making a blog post about adding blogs to the blogs I follow feature here on Word Press. With the pending New Year only a week or so away it dawns on me that I still don’t have the blog presence I resolved to in at least 3 of the last 5 new years. I have started and abandoned at least 3 blogs so far. I have tried to blog on databases in general, software development, systems administration, gardening, politics and various combinations thereof. I read as much as Blogging for Dummies as I could without buying a coffee refill at Barnes and Noble. I think I was reading at a venti level at that time. I am pretty sure it told me that one of the keys to getting good traffic to your site was by following blogs and linking to articles. It might also help to review a book.
